If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to pass through several security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can get it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you have a shared hosting plans, you have registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company listed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email address straight away. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only one mouse click, if you decide to move it to a different registrar company. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database is not valid. As the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
